HNU degree programmes with practical experience
Internships are an integral part of our degree programmes: An internship is compulsory for our Bachelor degree programmes. Additionally, students are supported before and after the internships.
When will the internship in my degree programme take place?
Fifth or sixth semester (depending on your choice of special fields of studies)
Common questions regarding internships
- How long does the internship take?
The internship semester is divided into the practical project and the courses accompanying it (introductory and closing block courses). After all leave or illness days or other absent periods have been deducted, students must have been present for at least 100 days.
After the exam period, the courses will take place at the HNU as block courses.
- Where can I find the internship suited for me?
It is up to you to select a suitable internship. However, we will be glad to assist you when searching for a internship, e.g. by providing the Career Service. The Service keeps in touch with companies and alumni of the HNU and will assist your search with its board for jobs and internships. You can access, free of charge, the offers available there. They are updated regularly and contain not only job offers, but also career events and subjects for theses.
The rinternship coordinators of the departments will also support you. They are responsible for approving the internship contract.
- What are the requirements to be able to do a internship?
In the degree programmes Industrial Engineering, Industrial Engineering / Logistics and Business Information Systems, you should begin your internship as soon as you have passed the courses of the previous semester. Should there be a hardship case, the Examinations Board will decide.
